Biostart is inoculant for biological seed treatment


Seed inoculant for biological seed treatment and protection

BioStart is seed inoculant for biological seed treatment to improve soil health by promoting the growth of beneficial microorganisms in seed care. The seed fungicides have active ingredient Penicillium Bilaiae, which improve seed germination and seedling growth, suppress plant diseases and promote nutrient uptake. BioStart is an alternative to traditional seed coating chemical, which can have negative impacts on the environment and human health. If looking for organic seed treatment products, Novobacoffers best seed inoculant for your crop protection.

Mode of Action

  • The Penicillium Bilaiae in product is type of bacteria that has been shown to have potential as a biological seed treatment product. It has been shown to improve seed germination and seedling growth in a variety of crops, including corn, wheat, and soybeans.
  • The fungus is thought to seed protection by producing enzymes that help to break down complex molecules in the seed coat, making it easier for the seed to absorb water and nutrients. It may also produce plant growth hormones that can stimulate the development of the seedling.
  • It serves as both a biostimulant seed treatment and a microbial seed treatment, promoting seed care and seed protection. It has been shown to work as seed fungicides, suppressing broad spectrum soil borne plant diseases by producing compounds that inhibit the growth of pathogenic microorganisms.
  • It helps to make nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus more accessible to the plant, potentially reducing the need for fertilizers. Stronger root systems developed with the help of this inoculant also allow plants to more effectively absorb moisture from the soil, improving the health of the soil over time through the presence of beneficial microorganisms.


  • Health start promotes better emergence
  • Effective seed fungicides for seedlings
  • Leading to the potential for increased yields
  • Creates a healthier environment around the seed
  • Optimizing plant root health and stress tolerance for stronger, more vigorous plants
  • Faster development of the canopy and improved nutrient uptake
  • Reducing the risk of early-season insect and disease pressure
  • Reduce the need for replanting, thereby saving on costs.

Application Rate

Add BioStart Seed Inoculant to appropriate amount of nonchlorinated water (3-5 times dilution) prior to or during seeding.

The planting window is the maximum time allowed between application and seeding.

Application with other seed treatment products is possible but may reduce the planting window.

  • Corn: 200–250 gram per 100 kg corn seed.
  • Soybean: 250–300 gram per 100 kg soybean seed
  • Wheat: 300–350 gram per 100 kg wheat seed
  • Rice: 300–400 gram per 100 kg rice seed
  • Canola: 250–300 gram per 100 kg canola seed

Tank Mixing

BioStart is compatible with other biostimulant seed treatment, microbial seed treatment, and chemical seed treatments. Tank mixing it with other seed treatments can enhance the efficacy of both products improving seed germination, seedling growth rates, and crop yields.

It can help maximize the quality of seed care by accelerating the growth of beneficial microorganisms while improving crop nutrient uptake and suppressing plant diseases. It is ideal for organic seed treatment methods, promoting sustainable agriculture production, and reducing environmental impact.

The versatility and compatibility makes it an essential component of any microbial seed treatment, organic seed treatment, or farming system seeking to improve seed protection and crop yields.
